How about hanging out with your own Oh, the loveable misfit from another planet in Fox’s latest animated adventure, Home?From strange crop circles to UFO sightings. Here are 10 of the best places around the world to go on an alien adventure:1. Sochi, RussiaResidents in Russia’s ‘M-Triangle’, a remote mountainous region east of Moscow, claim to have seen unexplained flashing lights at night, whilst others say they’ve come face to face with extra-terrestrials! But for the best chance of making new friends from another galaxy, head to Sochi. Sightings are so frequent here that UFO spotters think it could be a hub for aliens wanting to touch down on our little blue planet. 9. Bonnybridge, Scotland, UKThings are far from bonny in this Scottish town, considered the world’s top UFO spotting site. At the heart of the ‘Falkirk Triangle’, which encompasses Stirling, Fife and some suburbs of Edinburgh. Cast your eyes up and you might just be lucky enough to spot a flying saucer; with over 300 reported sighting a year, your chances are good! 5. Poirino, ItalyWhen aliens try to make contact they do it in style. Take a trip to Poirino in northern Italy, 12 miles southeast of Turin to see some cute crop circles. They could have been left by some artsy extra-terrestrials, they could be the handy work of crafty locals – we’ll let you decide. 4. Atacama Desert, ChileThis 600 mile stretch of red rocks and sandy slopes in northern Chile looks like something you’d find on Mars. One million people live here, despite there being no recorded rainfall in the region. But wait, it gets weirder! NASA have chosen the Atacama Desert to house their ALMA project. Europe, North America and East Asia are working together on this, the largest astronomical project in the world with 59 antennas searching the sky for signs of life.Read more: 10 amazing places you won’t believe exist on Earth 10. Etosha Pan, NamibiaCheck out Etosha for a slice of Saturn, without the space travel. Ethereal Etosha (meaning ‘great white place’ – for obvious reasons) National Park is twinned with a huge lake on the surface of Saturn’s moon Titan. Aside from looking like each other when viewed through a fancy space probe, they both refill from the bottom with groundwater which then evaporates, leaving behind the eerie white flats marked with sediment flows.If you liked this then read more about space travel:Skyscanner’s top 6 space destinations5 ways to be an astronautFancy going on your own adventure?

Rio Tinto, SpainIf Mars is the red planet, then this shockingly red river in south-western Spain would not be out of place there. Although the abnormal red colour of the water is caused by pollution from mining, and not by otherworldly operations, it’s still a pretty strange sight. You’re not a million light-years away from outer space on the banks of the Rio Tinto River; scientists believe that bacteria in the river are similar to life-forms they would hope to find on Mars. 8. Wiltshire, UKThis mystical masterpiece, found on Windmill Hill in Wiltshire is one of many you can marvel at across the UK. What makes this one special is its intricate design. Even if you can’t get a bird’s eye view, it’s still fun to wander through the fields and marvel at this possible sign of life from another planet. 6. Nullarbor Plain, AustraliaCrossing this arid land in southern Australia is considered a cultural pilgrimage, an ancient route used by Aborigines and other nomadic tribes for thousands of years. It was considered uninhabitable and the British military even tested the atomic bomb here in the 1950s. However, this isolated area shows signs of life. Drivers have reported UFO sightings and claimed to have been abducted by aliens along the route. We’d suggest maybe pulling over for a nap, but still, heed the warnings on the highway signs which warn motorists to ‘Beware of UFOs’.Find flights to Australia 2. Idaho, USCan’t afford a trip on a rocket to the moon? Well, visit the Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve in Idaho for the next best thing.

Roswell, New Mexico, USJust as in teen sci-fi TV hit of the same name, alien activity in Roswell is common. The tiny town has earned its reputation as a bed of unearthly encounters, with regular sightings since 1947, when debris from a flying saucer was allegedly found in an army air field nearby. They even have a four-day festival to celebrate all things out of this world, including a fancy dress competition for the best alien outfit.
